M45, only 8 five-minute subs with the new AstroTech 8 inch f/4 imaging Newtonian... a very sweet scope, light, strong, and supurb glass..
I used a prototype coma corrector for this image, the some as used on the Orion 6 inch earlier... but, this scope is amazing,

Just look at what Craig and Tammy are getting out of it!

Acqired, calibrated with flat and warm pixel map in nebulosity 2.2, finised in photoshop with Noel's tools and GreadientXterminator...
